Greek Style Whole Roasted Sea Bream

My friends, husband and I have a favorite Greek restaurant in North London that serves the most delicious authentic Greek food. One of my favorite things is the roasted whole sea bream. It’s absolutely delicious and so easy to prepare, with little to no ingredients. You could make this with any type of whole fish, and if you don’t like the head on just ask your fish monger to remove it.

What you’ll need:
1 300-500g Sea Bream (Ask the fish monger to remove scales, or you can easily do it yourself with a knife)
¼ c Greek olives (kalamata, green… etc)
1 lemon
2 tbsp. Olive oil + extra for drizzling
Handful Parsley
3 cloves garlic
100g cherry tomatoes
Salt and Pepper

To Start:

Line a flat baking sheet with foil, and preheat the oven to 200C or ~400F.

Next Prep:
Half the cherry tomatoes
Dice the garlic.
Mince the parsley
Add all three and combine and mash in a bowl.
Add the olives and olive oil and mix to combine.
Squeeze half the lemon juice and incorporate.

To cook:
Slice the fish with 4 inch lines on the side of the fish, not cutting all the way through.
Season with salt and pepper
Stuff the inside cavity with the tomato/olive/garlic/parsley mixture.
Rub all over the body of the fish.
Place a lemon wedge inside the body as well.
Bake for about 30 minutes at 190C or 375F or until golden brown!
